Facial sculpting is the practice of augmentation of the face to enhance a youthful or more pleasing appearance. This can be achieved by surgical methods (such as a full or partial facelift, neck lift or a cheek or chin enhancement) or using less invasive techniques using injectable dermal fillers. Dr Anita Dhunna is one of the UK’s most experienced non-surgical, facial specialists and has perfected the use of dermal fillers for facial augmentation during her many years in practice.
From her clinics in London and Essex, Dr Anita Dhunna delivers natural and subtle, yet highly effective facial rejuvenation without scalpels and with very little-to-no downtime.
Dermal fillers are made of a substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). HA offers plumping and reconstructing properties to both the facial anatomy and for the skin. When expertly injected in to certain areas of the face, dermal fillers help to restore areas of lost volume, sagging, wrinkling, bags and dehydrated skin. As HA is a naturally-occurring substance within the human body, there is very little risk of adverse reaction or side effects. However, it’s vital to choose a medically-qualified and specifically-trained practitioner to administer dermal filler products which have been proven to be safe and effective for the particular indication for which they are being used.
How do dermal fillers work?
Dermal fillers work in several ways. As a dermal filler for facial sculpting will tend to be of a viscous (thick) consistency – the substance will physically plump, lift and sculpt areas such as the chin, cheeks, jawline and temples. They produce a scaffold effect, supporting areas which may have succumbed to the ravages of time – a battle that gravity usually wins! By lifting the underlying tissues of the skin and plumping out specific facial areas, other features are augmented and improved. One can create a full facelifting effect with specific injection techniques (known as the 8-point lift) and from this treatment, significant results can be achieved and, in some cases,, up to 10 years can be erased from a patient’s looks! What’s more – the HA in dermal fillers can holdup to 1000 times its own weight in water, making dermal fillers ‘super-hydrators’ for the skin.
Following injection, the HA will start to take up water and plump out lines and wrinkles as well as improving the overall condition and resilience of the skin. Dr Anita Dhunna will always advise to drink plenty of water both before and after a dermal filler treatment, so that the product can get to work within your skin and offer that dewy glow to your complexion that you will love and your friends will envy.
Facial sculpting with dermal fillers
Facial sculpting using dermal fillers can be an excellent solution for a multitude of conditions in both men and women. Not only can the treatment enhance a youthful appearance by lifting jowls, highlighting the cheeks and plumping the temples (an area that succumbs to a hollow appearance as time passes), but can also help with asymmetry of the face, a weak chin, dark under eye bags and heavy, deep-set wrinkles that Botox will just not cope with.
The beauty of injectable dermal fillers is that they take very little time to administer, offer very little-to-no downtime (some mild swelling, bruising and tenderness can occur in the treatment area, but these side effects have been greatly reduced with innovative injection techniques using cannulas instead of traditional needles) and the results can last for months, if not years! Hence why dermal fillers are one of the UK’s most popular and sought after non-surgical treatments.
To ensure you are suitable for facial sculpting using dermal fillers, you will be asked to attend a no obligation, pre-treatment consultation with Dr Anita Dhunna, prior to any procedure at one of her clinics in London and Essex. This meeting will enable you to discuss what is concerning you about your facial features and your expected results. It also gives Dr Anita the opportunity to check your medical history and of course, examine your face, so that she can determine whether dermal fillers are a safe and viable option and how she will approach the procedure. After this initial meeting and if you are suitable, she can proceed with the treatment.
Using dermal fillers safely
There are over 150 dermal filler brands in the UK and this can be confusing for anyone who wishes to undergo facial sculpting using these products. However, Dr Anita Dhunna will only insist on using FDA approved, safe and tested dermal fillers, famous for their long-lasting, natural-looking results such as the Vycross range of Juvederm. Juvederm Voluma and Juvederm Volux are well known for their long lasting qualities. and J. Dr Anita Dhunna is a medical practitioner who is a comprehensively-trained expert in facial anatomy and the use of dermal fillers. Making sure that you go to a practitioner who has all the necessary qualifications and expertise may set you back a few pounds more, but cheap is not ‘chic’ when considering injectable treatments in your face. Safety is paramount when injectable treatments are being administered – accept nothing less than superlative!
